* My copy of The Vatican Princess was provided to me via request by Hodder & Stoughton and Bookbridgr *

The Gunslinger by Stephen King - The first volume in King's fantasy series The Dark Tower. This is only a slim book, coming in at under 300 words, with rather large writing. The blurb boasts gripping realism as well as an eerie dream-like state, so I'm bound to whiz through this at some point in the next few months!

Dark Places by Gillian Flynn - Considering how much I, as well as everyone else and their mum, loved Gone Girl, I'm surprised it's taken me this long to decide to read Dark Places. From what I can tell this surrounds massacre and, possibly, cults. I'm ready for Flynn to blow me away again.

Authority by Jeff VanderMeer - The sequel to the amazing Annihilation which I read last year and have not since forgotten about. It's been a while since I've delved into my love of science fiction, so now is the time.

The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler - Picked up from work as soon as I saw we stocked it. This is one of those books that's been in my consciousness for years but I still have no idea what it's about...other than vaginas.

Brooklyn by Colm Tóibín - Film hype! Historical coming-of-age, war, Ireland, New York, romance. Colour me all over this.

The Vatican Princess* by C. W. Gortner - I knew I needed to read this as soon as I saw it available on Bookbridgr. I've been replaying far too much Assassin's Creed lately, so the Borgias are at the front of my mind. I'm not expecting any level of historical accuracy in this, honestly, but I am expecting a damn exciting time.

The Sandman Volumes 8-10 by Neil Gaiman - Finally polishing off this indulgently mad series. I'm going to be so sad to see it go, but the amount of spin-offs for these characters will keep me going for another few years.
